The WAH Center (Williamsburg Art and Historical Center) is pleased to host Now: Press Play, an exhibition of works by SUNY New Paltz MFA and Alumni. Celebrating the long-standing spirit of New Paltz’s passionate creation of radical aesthetics and critical crafts, this show is curated by Glenn Adamson, Senior Scholar at the Yale Center for British Art.
I’m an unapologetic advocate for craft […] and my selection here includes artists who work vigorously into and through their materials, whether conventional (clay, wood, metal, fiber) or otherwise. In dialogue with this assertive materiality, there is a noticeable emphasis on narrative, often caught in a moment of arrested development. Quite a few works in the show strike me as ideal props for films still unwritten.” Glenn Adamson
